Miley Cyrus' new music video for "Mother's Daughter" dropped on Tuesday (July 2) and it sees the pop titan push the feminist agenda behind the track's lyrics.
In the clip, the 26-year-old appears in front of an empty set dressed in a racy latex catsuit, but this time the chart-topper has paired her sexuality with a much-welcomed politically-charged message for all kinds of women, including her own mother Tish Cryus. As the clip unravels, viewers see Tish, as well as a number of other faces like skateboarder Lacey Baker, transgender model Casil McArthur, dancer Amazon Ashley, Vandela, transgender model Aaron Philip, actress Angelina Duplisea, and actress Mela Murder. Not only does the project rep for female diversity, but Cyrus also makes her political stance crystal clear as messages like "virginity is a social construct" and "not an object" plash across the screen. "Mother's Daughter" is the first single off her latest EP, She Is Coming, which dropped in late May.
On Monday (July 1), Cryus teased the clip on Twitter, writing, "@almacyber [Alma] & I wrote a bad ass feminist anthem called Mother’s Daughter and I am dropping the music video tomorrow 7/2! Beware it’s the SH*T just like all the bad ass women starring alongside muah!"
Cyrus is performing at this year's iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas in September alongside a lineup of superstar artists.
